    Remember the recent rules changes:
    SHUB-NIGGURATH faction card

    How to Awaken Shub-Niggurath
    1) You must have a Controlled Gate, plus at least two Cultists anywhere.
    2) Pay 8 Power
    3) Remove two Cultists from anywhere on the map. Place Shub-Niggurath on your Controlled Gate.

    SHUB-NIGGURATH spellbook
    The Red Sign (ongoing) your Dark Young can now Build Gates, Control Gates, earn 1 Power each during the Gather Power phase, and add +1 apiece to Shub-Niggurath's Combat. They do not act as Cultists with respect to any other purpose.

    GREAT CTHULHU faction card
    Spellbook requirement
    In the first Doom phase, receive this spellbook. Also receive 1 Elder Sign.

    Huh. Thought I edited the faction sheets to reflect the changes. Guess that was the old images. I'll update them tonight with the errata.

    edit: oops, I did already change them!

    @MrBody @Daemonis I don't think this is a legal action, unless I'm looking at the old erroneous faction sheet.

    A requirement for the King in Yellow to be summoned is to have a unit in an area with a gate, but currently all of the Yellow Sign's units (before summoning the King) are at a gate.

    Spellbooks-

    Devolve (Ongoing): At the end of any player's Action (even if it's not your turn), transform one or more of your Acolyte Cultists anywhere on the map into Deep Ones.

    Absorb (Pre-Battle): Remove any of your non-GOO units from the area. For each such unit, the Shoggoth adds 3 to his Combat.

    Regenerate (Battle): Star Spawn can accept up to 2 combat results. If they are both kills, it dies. On ANY other combination, it is pained.

    Submerge (Action: Cost 1): If Cthulhu is in an Ocean Area, remove him from the map and place him on your Faction card, along with any or all friendly Units in the same area. On a later Action, perform Submerge again to place Cthulhu (plus any accompanying Units) anywhere on the map.

    Dreams (Action: Cost 3): Choose an area with enemy Acolyte Cultists. Your enemy must eliminate an Acolyte Cultist (chosen by victim) and replace it with one of yours from your pool.

    Y'ha Nthlei (Ongoing): If Cthulhu is in play you get 1 power for each Gate in an Ocean area that you do not control. (uncontrolled Gates do not count, because everyone gets one
    power from them anyway, but Yog-Sothoth does count).

    Crawling Chaos
    Cthulhu%2BWars%2B-%2BReference%2BCard%2B-%2BCrawling%2BChaos.JPG

    Spellbooks-

    Abduct (Pre-Battle): Eliminate a Nightgaunt, your foe must eliminate a non-GOO unit in the same area.

    Invisibility (Pre-Battle): Each Flying Polyp can select one non-GOO to be sidelined, and not take part in the battle.

    Seek and Destroy (Pre-Battle): Whenever a battle is declared in which one of your units participates, you may move any or all of your Hunting Horrors on the board to the location of the battle.

    Madness (Ongoing): Whenever there is a combat anywhere on the map, you may choose where units that are pained move to.

    Emissary of the Outer Gods (Ongoing): Nyarlathotep must be in play; Unless an enemy Great Old One is in the battle, any kill inflicted on Nyarlathotep becomes a pain.

    The Thousand Forms (Once-Per-Action-Round: Cost 0): Nyarlathotep must be in play; roll 1d6 and all other players have one minute to decide if they will lose that much power. If they decide not to lose the Power, Nyarlathotep gains that much Power.

    Black Goat

    Spellbooks-

    Frenzy (Ongoing): Cultists have a Combat of 1.

    Necrophagy (Post-Battle): Move any or all Ghouls to that battle and apply an additional pain result to each side for each Ghoul so moved. Ghouls that are already in the combat cannot participate in Necrophagy.

    Ghroth (Action: Cost 2): Roll a die. If the result is equal to or less than the number of areas containing Fungi, then your enemies must collectively lose that many Acolyte Cultists from the map. If they can't decide in one minute do it for them.

    The Red Sign (ongoing) your Dark Young can now Build Gates, Control Gates, earn 1 Power each during the Gather Power phase, and add +1 apiece to Shub-Niggurath's Combat. They do not act as Cultists with respect to any other purpose.

    Blood Sacrifice (Ongoing): Each Doom Phase you may sacrifice 1 Cultist to get an Elder Sign. Shub-Niggurath must be in play.

    The Thousand Young (Ongoing): Shub-Niggurath must be in play. All Ghouls, Fungi, and Dark Young cost 1 less power to summon.

    Yellow Sign

    Shriek of the Byakhee (Action: Cost 1): Move any or all Byakhee on the map to any single area on the map.

    The Screaming Dead (Action: Cost 1): Move the King in Yellow and any Undead in the same area to a neighboring area, you may immediately perform a second, different action (may not perform He Who Must Not Be Named as the second action).

    He Who Must Not Be Named (Action: Cost 1): Hastur immediately moves to an area on the map with a Cultist. He may then perform a second, different action (may not perform The Screaming Dead as the second action).

    The Third Eye (Ongoing): Hastur must be in play; Desecrate costs only 1 Power to perform, and grants you an Elder Sign when successful.

    One thing I quickly learned. As long as the player has power and pieces left, no gate is really undefended.

    Die roll is simultaneous. When attacking you can just roll for both sides.
